The Sister's Run Story
"The Truth is in the vineyard but the proof is in the glass" Sister's Run is serious fun. Our talented young winemaker Elena wears steel cap work boots every day of course, but carries a pair of high heels in back of the ute, only for emergencies, like last minute invitations to accept trophies at gala wine show dinners and the like. Returning from a 'knees-up' at midnight, mid vintage, she managed to kick off one high heel and slip back into a boot' just as the cellar crew cried out, 'Run Sister Run'; and exactly then our winemaker and label took flight! The stiletto and boot are Sister's Run; an independently owned and operated winery with a fierce commitment to making the best wines we can from family vineyards. We don't take ourselves as seriously as we take our wines, but agree with Elena, all you need to know about wine is the five 'V's and - remember - the best wine is the wine you like. We hope you enjoy this wine as much as we did making it.
Why's this wine for you?

It’s no secret that we at The Wine Collective are smitten with Elena Brookes. She constantly amazes us with her work at Dandelion and Heirloom vineyards. She shines down on the Australian wine landscape like a guiding light.

When making wine, it's all about understanding your customer. And Elena gets it. She makes wines that people love. Wines of heart and soul, that simply taste GOOD. No excessive oak or harsh tannins. Just a whole lot of flavour at a ridiculous price.

This Barossa Cabernet comes from the Bethlehem block, right smack bang in the center of the Barossa wine-growing area and apart from a solid 94 points from James Halliday it also picked up gold at the Melbourne International Wine Competition 2017.

The Brief
How's it taste?
A perfect Cabernet entry. Alert bright fruit. Direct, full and fine and precise Cabernet softness. Rich mouth filling soft fruit, especially cedar and cassis. Juicy round blackberry sweetness, and red currant tartness tempered with some taut but typical Cabernet tannin.This is a wine for grilled lamb burgers or steaks done medium-rare.

James Halliday - Halliday's Wine Companion
Gold medals in two mediocre wine shows say nothing, a gold medal from the Barossa Valley Wine Show would have been a better guide for what is a very good Barossa Valley cabernet. The region isn't user-friendly for most cabernet, site being important.
